I had to restart a bunch of the files in this upload, so they uploaded out of order. But the track numbers are correct - but for some reason it still thinks track 07 is track 1.

how do I get it to recognize the right order? Thanks!

I tried to take out leading zeroes, etc in the metadata editor, but nothing worked.

It seems from the FAQ that I have to put the actual number into the track name. I'll do that and see if it works. Thanks!

Here's the show:

Bear in mind that on *nix systems, capital letters sort ahead of lowercase. You have a few tracks that start with AOD while the others start with Aod, so the all-caps tracks (7, 9, 15, 16, 18 and 20) are sorting first. Here's how to fix:

Go to Edit item > change the files. Right-click on each of the above-numbered files and choose "Rename". Change "AOD" to "Aod", and then delete all of their associated derivatives - not just the mp3/ogg files but ALSO the zip, ffp, md5 and m3u files. Then click "Update Item" at the bottom.

Now it's time to re-create all of those derivatives - go to Edit item > change the information, click the Item manager link at the top, and then click the derive button. Wait an hour or so and you're good to go.
